as the youngest member of the porsche model family, the new taycan includes the new features introduced in the other versions at the model year changeover. for example, the plug & charge function enables convenient charging and payments without the need for cards or an app: as soon as the charging cable is plugged in, the new taycan establishes encrypted communication with the plug & charge-compatible charging station. the charging process then starts automatically and so does the payment.

with the standard performance battery, the new entry-level model delivers up to 300 kW (408 PS; taycan with performance battery: fuel consumption combined 0 l/100 km, CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, electricity consumption combined 28.0 kwh/100 km) in overboost mode with launch control; this increases to an output of up to 350 kW (476 PS; taycan with performance battery plus: fuel consumption combined 0 l/100 km, CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, electricity consumption combined 28.7 kwh/100 km) with the optional performance battery plus. nominal power is 240 kW (326 PS) or 280 kW (380 PS) respectively.

the new taycan accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds, whichever battery is specified. its top speed is also 230 km/h in both configurations, while its maximum charging capacity is up to 225 kW (performance battery) or up to 270 kW (performance battery plus). this means that both batteries can be charged from five to 80 per cent SoC in 22.5 minutes and that power for a further 100 kilometers is achieved after only five minutes.
